Many a summer day is spent in the pursuit of the perfect lawn. That’s going to mean mowing. Whether you do it yourself or hire the kid from next door there are some tried and true lawn mowing tips you should be following to make sure your new grass will grow as green as it should.
After planting new sod you should let it grow for a least ten days straight. The idea length for a lawn is anywhere between 1 1/2 to 2 inches. Lawns that grow higher than that could end up “thatching” which can prevent water from spreading evenly. If for some reason your grass has grown long don’t cut it all down at once. You should only chop off 1/3 of the grass blade. Then wait a few days to cut the rest. Yes, you can shock your new grass!
Then there is the issue of your lawn mower. Are you an old school gas pump kind of a mower? You you like the eco-friendly rotary tumbler? Or do you prefer to go electric? Any type of lawnmower will get the job done but if your mower has seen better days then it might be time to make the switch. Now is the perfect time to go shopping for a lawn mower, as many stores are eager to clear out their stock.
No matter where you live, storage space is always at a premium. There is no reason to keep that old lawn mower when you’ve got the new one doing the job. To get rid of that mower you’ll need to turn to the pros from Junk King Capital District. These are the junk removal experts that have been helping folks in the Albany area since 2005.

The Junk King crew knows where to head when their truck is loaded.

Are you a hoarder or a collector? The answer to that question might depend on who is doing the asking. Recently, Albany has seen its fair share of extreme hoarding cases referred to the authorities. Over in Ballston Spa, local officials were forced to step in and seize the home from a diagnosed hoarder when she refused to clean up her property and ending up creating a health hazard for the neighborhood. Another couple was fined $1,000 and told to clean up their front yard or they’ll be fined again. In a sad and extreme case, a local woman was found dead buried under her junk. Apparently she had been hoarding junk for over 20 years. When this kind of collecting gets to be an obsession then it becomes hoarding. The main distinction is whether or not a person can throw something away.
Where would you rate yourself on the hoarder versus collector scale? You might have a lot of junk you wish you could throw away but don’t have the means to do so. That doesn’t make you a hoarder. It just makes all that trash “inconvenient.” As soon as you’re ready to toss it out, Junk King Capital District will swoop in to take care of the job.
